Experience

SCHLUMBERGER | GBS Finance - SAP Deployment | August 2021 – Present

Scope: 3 full-cycle implementations (X3, XB1, X5); 21 countries included – notably France, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore

Responsible for setting up new Legal Ledger in SAP

  • Assigned as Lead for setting up the new legal ledger which is a specific requirement for France
  • Contrary to other countries which had “gone-live” in SAP, France requires a Legal ledger in addition to Management, Fiscal and Tax. This means that there will be currency, depreciation, chart of account mapping and other implications for this new ledger.
  • Arranged and conducted a workshop for France release related managers/colleagues (roughly 20 people) on Legal ledger implications such as currency, chart of account mapping etc.
  • Act as an Intermediary between Business and SQL Team – Business communicates their reporting/function requirements in an ERP; SQL communicates the limitations in programming, my responsibility is to ensure the function/loads are possible and appropriate

Post Go-Live Communications and Adjustments

  • Present legacy ERP versus SAP stakeholders including Head of Tax, FIC and Accounting; Stats Compliance, Fiscal Process, Data Quality and Accounting Transformation Manager – showing the result of SAP transformation of Fixed Assets and explaining the variances/cleansing/adjustments on the fiscal books as a result of migration requirements
  • Communicate with analysts for their respective entities to help them understand processing moving forward with SAP (Handover)
  • Provide support for Tax with audit for the year of SAP migration, answering their queries on adjustments and SAP functions/logic
  • Coordinate conversion account clearing for FA/Inventory/AP/AR/Cash – ensure that SL-GL balances are reclassed to their respective appropriate accounts
  • Clearing of the Balancing Conversion Account based on Open Item Management Reconciliation (OIM)
  • Solved currency mismatch issues in OIM GRIR account – PO was cleared in company code currency rate instead of the PO rate

Responsible for Tax (L2) Ledger Redesign for Local GAAP

  • Due to specific requirement for CIT calculation (local GAAP), the Tax (L2) Ledger in SAP cannot be used after the entity go-live.
  • Assigned to coordinate L2 ledger redesign between Tax and SQL Team – Tax communicates their reporting/function requirements in an ERP; SQL communicates the limitation in SAP programming, my responsibility is to ensure the end user is able to use the ledger
  • Example 1: Saudi Arabia Entities CIT calculates categorical depreciation based on 50% of prior year lump sum written down value and 50% of lump sum current year value, but the Ledger currently only calculates depreciation by asset line; not lump sum.
  • Example 2: Indian Entities CIT calculates current year depreciation for disposed asset based on written down value less sales proceed, booking the difference as a result of sales proceed into deferred depreciation allowance account.

Preparation of Fiscal/Tax Fixed Asset Subledger Loads for SAP

  • Led a team of 4 in performing Management vs Fiscal reconciliation of Fixed Asset Listings – ensure that asset count is equal except when there is a local GAAP, e.g. Laptops are considered expense in Management books but Fixed Asset in Fiscal books.
  • Responsible for conducting a Fixed Asset Conversion A-Z KT Training for new analysts responsible for other releases
  • Communicate with Tax Department/Auditors on the appropriate treatment of unreconciled assets 
  • Communicate with stakeholders pertaining to additional designs requirements for local treatment of assets
  • Ensure the data that is being loaded is appropriate – Life, Inservice Date, Opening/Closing Accumulated Depreciation, Current Year Depreciation relates to each other logically
  • Recalculation of Tax ledger depreciation based on Fiscal Asset Listing, e.g. Fiscal is Straight line whereas Tax is Written Down Value
  • Testing and validating the logic of SAP using P&L budgeting/forecasting report and planned/scheduled depreciation reports

Month-to-Month Fiscal Processing of Fixed Assets

  • Analysis for Asset movement, Depreciation, Currency Exchange, Freight Costs, Revaluation and Impairment of Fixed Assets for the Fiscal ledger using FMS and DSS reports on a month-to-month basis
  • Post JVs to ensure that subledger and general ledger is equal
  • Analysis of fixed asset suspense – clearing the amount not relating to Asset Under Construction

Preparation of Fiscal Trial Balance Loads for SAP

  • Ensure the completeness of entities scoping under the KLFH scope using Enterprise Mapping prepared by HQ.
  • Tagging of pillars for each account, e.g. P&L, cash, account receivable/payable, inventory, fixed asset
  • Ensure the auto Current Year P&L recalculation is in line with expectation previously forecasted in legacy P&Ls
  • Mapping of legacy accounts to SAP accounts (chart of accounts), tagging Open Items to be excluded from the fiscal Trial Balance

RESEARCH IN APPLIED ECONOMICS (HONOURS DEGREE) | 2020-2021

  • Produced a dissertation on IPO Under-pricing under the supervision of Dr Andrew Harkins from University of Warwick
  • Research extends to factors with regard to accounting data, economic condition and market sentiment
  • Screening financial and economic data from TM Eikon, e.g. P/E, Quick, D/E ratio; GDP/Export Growth
  • Regression model development – the use of Ordinary Least Square (OLS) to perform a multivariate regression
